Bias Based Profiling Information
General Information

The practice of unlawful profiling is based on stereotypical characteristics of persons or groups that some officers believe have a propensity to engage in criminal activity. Profiling has been identified as the stopping of motorists, the detention of a person, and/or the searching of a vehicle based solely on the individual's:

  • Race
  • Ethnic origin
  • Gender
  • Age
  • Income status

Profiling is illegal and inconsistent with the principles of American policing. It is an indefensible public protection strategy that is not a legitimate law enforcement practice.
